: Looking Back with Lord Reith

Lord Reith, first Director-General of the BBC, who shaped and directed it for its first 15 years, died in Edinburgh earlier this month at the age of 81. John Reith began his working life as an engineer in Glasgow. He served in the First World War. He started the British Broadcasting Company as its first General Manager in 1922. He was the BBC's Director-General for 11 years. During the Second World War he was a Minister in Churchill's Government.

After the war Lord Reith went to the Colonial Development Corporation. He returned to Scotland, was appointed Lord High Commissioner to the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, and became Lord Rector of the University of Glasgow.

In this programme compiled from three films first shown in 1967 Lord Reith, in conversation with Malcolm Muggeridge, looks back over his life and his years with the BBC.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
